Corona, CA – Pro Taper is pleased to announce that the Valli Motorsports Rockstar Yamaha organization has re-signed with the brand to continue using Pro Taper handlebars, grips and throttle tubes exclusively through 2011. VMS is entering their second season using Pro Taper products and both parties are excited for what the new season brings.
"The Valli Motorsports Rockstar Yamaha team is definitely on the up swing and Pro Taper is thrilled to be apart of the program. Jon has built an impressive line-up for 2011 that includes veteran fan favorite Nick Wey and 450 class rookie Austin Stroupe. Between the two of them there should be a Pro Taper equipped VMS Yamaha running near the front on a weekly basis." Said Pro Taper Marketing Manager Charles Castloo.
Valli Motorsports Rockstar Yamaha team manager Jon Mitcheff added, "Pro Taper was our first choice when it came to handlebars for our team. They are the original when it comes to oversized bar technology and they have a proven track record of performance. Our riders insisted on PT, so I'm happy that we were able to reach an agreement to take us through the 2011 Supercross and Motocross seasons."
Both riders have chosen their favorite Pro Taper EVO handlebar bend and are pounding out laps from now until the January 8th season opener in Anaheim. Be sure to stop by the VMS transporter at a Supercross near you.
